Tamil is spoken in southern India and north eastern Sri Lanka. Tamil while being a beautiful looking language it suffers from font issues, swapping one Tamil font for another can sometimes cause problems and some subtitling applications do not render the fonts correctly. We only use Tamil fonts that we have proved to work correctly in the subtitling software.

We can advise you on the options available to suit your video and even produce samples for you to consider.

SRT Translation and Transcription Services

Using Adelphi’s English to Tamil translation services for subtitling, quality and timing can be closely controlled throughout the project, ensuring that your subtitles will always be ready to publish on or before your deadline. We also provide Tamil subtitling for many translation agencies around the world and are happy to work with their translations. As some languages must use specific fonts in order to work with the subtitling software, we can consult with you on your needs and advise you of all of your options.

Our in-house subtitle translations department are experts in English to Tamil translations and subtitle/SRT file creation specifically for subtitling projects. SRT files are time-coded transcripts that can be imported into the subtitling software that then displays the correct subtitle in the correct sequence.

We also offer a transcription service for those customers lacking a transcript of their videos. We provide time-coded scripts of your videos that are ready to be translated. We will then use those translations for the subtitle text, sending you the files at each stage of the process for you to review and assess.
